Justice for Underserved Students: Teacher Preparation in Inclusive Classroom Environments
The JUSTICE Project is a Canisius College Program that is funded through the U.S. Office of Special Education Programs. The Project aims at finding ways to improve teacher education programs to help improve urban education and the education of students with high-incidence disabilities.
May 22, 2014: A Showcase of Teacher Inquiry and Research from Everyday Practice
The JUSTICE Project at Canisius College working in collaboration with the Buffalo Teacher Center, is proud to sponsor a professional development session showcasing teacher research projects. During the 2013-14 school year, Buffalo teachers actively participated in an ongoing professional development series that focused on implementing best practices in inclusive classroom environments. Throughout the year, teachers devel-oped inquiry studies that monitored student outcomes. Data collection methods were utilized to measure and analyze the use of instructional strategies within classrooms.
During the Teacher Inquiry Showcase, teachers will share their inquiry research projects and discuss how the use evidence-based practices enhanced learning opportunities for their students. An open gala poster session will enable attendees to learn about the research studies, ask ques-tions, and engage in professional dialogue to develop a deeper understanding of how to embed practical, evidence-based interventions into their own everyday practices.
